On our travels home from Florida we stopped in Atlanta to visit the Georgia Aquarium. Before moving to the midwest we lived in Atlanta for a few years, and right when we were transferring jobs and packing up to leave the state, only a month later they opened up the aquarium. Go figure! Well we missed our chance to see it and were pretty bummed. So with a bit of time to spare on our drive home, we figured the kiddos (and us too) would love to see what it looked like. It was AMAZING!!!! If you're in Georgia and haven't been to it yet you surely need to go see it. They have some of the largest indoor tanks which you'll see in a few of my photos; it's beyond real how large they are. They have whale sharks, beluga whales, great hammerhead sharks, manta rays, bottlenose dolphins and more! The marine life was simply outstanding. I wish my photos were a bit better because it was so dark around every corner and I am not a pro with my camera so I have a few more blurred images than I'd liked, but oh well. When I was a child I wanted to be a dolphin trainer and let me tell you, after seeing their dolphin show, I totally wish I followed thru with that one. The kids were highly impressed and Wyeth's excitement over them jumping and doing tricks just made my heart smile. He was even sure that when we go swimming again at the beach we can get a few dolphins to help push us around underwater if we want. Can you spot the dolphin in the photo below? Also what's your favorite marine life critter?
My tiny family above right. Isn't that whale shark above HUGE!!!
